Discover Men's Hiking Boots For Every Adventure

If you are considering hiking, trekking, camping or travelling, and it involves walking for a day or more in outdoor settings or natural environments like the Australian bush, you will need a pair of good men's hiking boots. It's harder than it looks to scale uneven ridges, negotiate slippery rocks or forge new trails through a forest, especially in changing weather conditions and with heavy gear loads. Quality footwear will make a huge difference with purpose-made protection, support and comfort.


Men's Hiking Boots FAQs

How to choose the best men's hiking boots

Here are a few key factors to keep in mind when purchasing hiking boots for men:

  • Protective: Hiking boots should keep your feet safe and dry. Look for waterproof upper treatments and linings to keep rain and water on the outside, and toe caps, heel caps and mudguards to deliver protection from rocks, mud and debris.
  • Good grip: The terrain you are hiking on determines the type of grip you need on your hiking boots. Traction is crucial for rocky or muddy paths, so you will need deep, multi-directional lugs for these conditions. On concrete or cleared trails, you require minimal grip so light hiking boots or trail running shoes may be more effective
  • Weight: Choose the most lightweight hiking boots you can find that still provide the right fit, protection and support. You want to minimise weight on your trek in order to save energy, but not at the expense of support, especially if you have a heavy pack to carry.
  • Materials: Leather makes for high durability and protection, but synthetic materials are often lighter, more breathable and take less time to break in.
  • Height: Mid or tall-cut men's hiking boots offer a locked-in feel with more ankle protection and support on uneven surfaces. For flat ground, men's low-cut hiking boots or hiking shoes are more responsive.

How should men's hiking boots fit?

For hikers, there is nothing more important than properly fitting boots designed for walking and climbing. If you are purchasing a new pair of men's hiking boots, start by choosing the same size as your normal shoe size to ensure a firm fit, which prevents rubbing and slipping that could lead to blisters. Then, depending on the design, lacing or strapping system, and the thickness of the socks you are wearing, you may opt for a half-size bigger.


Are men's hiking boots waterproof?

Keeping your feet dry when hiking outdoors is crucial - it prevents rubbing or slipping inside your hiking boots, which may lead to painful blisters, hotspots and other inflammation. It will also help to minimise odours and bacterial build-up, enhancing hygiene and improving the overall lifespan of your footwear. Many high-quality hiking boots are constructed with waterproof linings and upper treatments, such as those manufactured by GORE-TEX®, to ensure your footwear is watertight from rain, mud and wet tracks.
